Dietary Supplements: EU Law

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 8 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment the Government has made of the effect of the implementation of the Food Supplements Regulations on the planting, development and import of genetically-modified material. (203512)

No assessment has been made of the effect of the Food Supplements Regulations on the planting, development and import of genetically modified material in the United Kingdom. The Food Supplements Regulations do not contain provisions for genetically modified material. Separate European Community legislation provide measures for the authorisation, cultivation and import of genetically modified organisms.
